Ride Central mass sun. 8-17-14

Yeh, I know kinda last minute ..................
SUNDAY 8-17-14
Central mass Spencer to either Orange , or Sunderland depending on size of group

Mostly back country paved and dirt roads , with a couple short 2 track sections here and there . Wife and I will be on Klr 650's , but folks have done all of this on Big bikes , I have done all of it on a Vstrom 1K with street rubber .

route is roughly 190 miles give or take
most breaks will be on the side of the road and NOT at a store so have a bottle of water and some snacks .
there is a gas stop at the 1/2 way point .


please start with a full tank of gas and an empty bladder

we will meet on RT 9 in Spencer at the DUNKIN DONUTS in the big Y plaza
there are 2 gas stations right across the street . show up early if you want to eat something .
we roll out of the parking lot at 9:30 sharp


please post up here if you plan to go

I just played around with the route a bit ,
we'll be eating at Bub's BBQ in Sunderland for lunch (aprox 75miles) from the start , there is gas next door for those that need it .

round trip for the route is 135 miles. (assuming you go all the way back to spencer)

we will be as far north as Orange mass and as far west as sunderland before heading back .

How about the black dog in the middle of the road. Wasn't that a song?

I would expect that the black horse and its owner were long gone to who-knows-where! hopefully the owner survived it!
